Battle of Xincheng

The Meng Da Rebellion, also known as the Battle of Xincheng, was a revolt that took place in the state of Cao Wei between late 227 and early 228 during the Three Kingdoms period. The rebellion was initiated by Meng Da, a former Shu Han general who defected to Wei and was placed in charge of Xincheng commandery (located in the vicinity of present-day northwestern Hubei) in Jing Province. The revolt was swiftly suppressed within a month by the Wei general Sima Yi and Meng Da was captured and executed.
